GoPro Teams Up With The NHL

Announcements coming today that GoPro has partnered with the NHL and NHLPA which brings great news leading into the 2015 All-Star Game weekend. Not only will GoPro cameras be worn throughout the festivities in Columbus, Ohio this weekend but future live broadcasting of games will see a unique experience in HD display the rest of the season and into the playoffs.

“The company is announcing the deal in time for the upcoming NHL All-Star Weekend, where cameras will be on some refs and on the inside of the rink for the Skills Competition. During the season, the NHL and NHLPA can now outfit refs with the cameras, and game broadcasts will have the option to cut over to them for new points of view. Earlier this month, GoPro announced a new partnership with Vislink to deliver wireless HD footage for live broadcasts (GoPro is calling this its Professional Broadcast Solution) and the Skills Competition will be the debut of this technology.”  – Fortune Magazine

I grew up playing Ball and Roller Hockey day and night somewhat religiously throughout elementary and middle school. The two don't compare though when I lace up the skates and hit the ice. I live and breathe hockey beyond the perspective of "it's just a game" and I will gladly talk hockey for hours with anyone. Hockey is more than just a lifestyle, it's a culture of passionate people who make memories every time the puck is dropped. Hockey has not only helped me get through some of the hardest times in life but has created some of the best memories to date. Want to talk hockey with me? Shoot me an email: iburdetskiy@hookedonhockey.com and let's talk some hockey!
